Writing YAML to a file with Python (Python 3)

Writing YAML to a file with Python

Although most will only read YAML as a configuration file, it can be very handy to write YAML as well.

In the following example, we'll:

  • Create a list with names as we did before
  • Save the names to a YAML formatted file with yaml.dump
  • Read and print the file, as proof that everything worked as expected

This example code is from the Python YAML tutorial at Python Land.

We support oEmbed, but most sites use allowlisting. On WordPress, oEmbed is supported out of the box, but see the note below.

If you plan to use crumb.sh heavily on Wordpress, you can use the following PHP code to allowlist our site and unlock all the functionalities of our crumbs:
wp_oembed_add_provider( 'https://crumb.sh/*', 'https://crumb.sh/oembed/' );

Embed.ly

Embed.ly is a service that allows you to embed content from other sites. We will request to be added to the list of trusted sites once we're out of beta.
